Dayna Baumeister

Co-founder and Partner at Biomimicry 3.8

With a background in biology, a devotion to applied natural history, and a passion for sharing the wonders of nature with others, Dayna has worked in the field of biomimicry with Janine Benyus since 1998 as a business catalyst, educator, researcher, and design consultant. Together they founded the Biomimicry Guild, The Biomimicry Institute, and Biomimicry 3.8, collectively fertilizing the movement of biomimicry as an innovative practice and philosophy to meet the world’s sustainability challenges. Dayna designed and teaches the world’s first MS in Biomimicry as a Professor of Practice at Arizona State University, co-founded The Biomimicry Center at ASU, and compiled more than 20 years of experience in biomimicry into the Biomimicry Resource Handbook: A Seed Bank of Knowledge and Best Practices (2014).
